Nathan Thomas has handed Pools a huge summer boost by putting pen to paper on a brand new contract to commit his future to the Club.
The winger joined Pools from Mansfield Town in January and soon hit top form, scoring five goals in 22 appearances as Craig Hignett’s men stormed away from trouble at the bottom of League Two.
Thomas’ eye-catching performances on the left side of midfield had led to speculation that he would be lured away from Victoria Park but he has now agreed a deal to keep him at the Club.
It marks another good piece of business for boss Hignett who has already rewarded Matthew Bates and double Player of the Year Trevor Carson for their performances last term with new contracts.
“Nathan has got all the ability in the world – now we need to get that consistency from him,” said Hignett.
“I think you saw what he’s capable of towards the end of the last season – the Morecambe game stands out where he was almost unplayable in the first half and the game was won.
“That’s what I want from Nathan and I want it more consistently next year; we want to keep players like him who can change games and I’m delighted he’s signed.
“He’s an ambitious lad who wants to learn and wants to get better – I am sure he will and he will go on to be a real asset for the Club.”
